Masculinité, Famille et Foi: Post Endline Qualitative Study
Masculinité, Famille et Foi (MFF) is an implementation-research project that addresses a broad range of social norms, at scale, to improve violence prevention, gender equality, family planning (FP), and reproductive health. The MFF approach posits that engaging religious leaders and faith communities to promote positive masculinities and gender equality can enable conditions where social and gender norms may shift to support new, healthy behaviors. This report details the findings of the 2021 post-program qualitative study, which aimed to explore whether and how the MFF theory of change reflects the actual pathways through which young couples uptake voluntary FP and prevent intimate partner violence (IPV). Participants included men and women early in their marital relationship and were recruited from two MFF intervention sites and two comparison sites in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo.
